Uganda: Quality Chemicals to Produce New Aids Drug

Ugandan firm Quality Chemicals Industrial Limited (QCIL) plans to produce Duomune as a new anti-retroviral drug, that will be taken a single tablet, rather than in combination with others.

QCIL says the recommended dose of Duomune is one tablet, taken orally, once daily with food. It is designed for adults above the age of 18. QCIL Executive Director Emmanuel Katongole says production begins in May after QCIL has secured the National Drugs Authority approval.
